      Thanks for your ost on the HER2. Hoping your first weeks have been ok. I'm set for Nov.29. Having some anxiety, just want it done. The waiting is the worst.,but I have great support.

      Gosh, hang in there sweetheart!
      Hope you heal well. I just got diagnosed and have yet to meet with my surgeon, so you are a little bit ahead of me. Any tips on questions you wished you had asked your surgeon at your first visit?

      Ask the dr. how many times they have done the procedure (20 to 30). Find out your ER and PR and Her2 and what that means for treatment. Talk or research all options online and that helps to give you some questions. Write the questions and given answers down even if you have someone with you. INFO overload. My hubby did some discussion before the diagnosis, before it was real. I knew a male friend who had breast surgery so I had some knowledge before hand that swayed my decision in the direction I;m going. He had radiation which damaged his heart and eventually died from. Not the cancer. I have a heart defect so I am trying to avoid radiation.

    Oh No (Diagnosed): went into shock, even though mother had it in early 1970's.
